Lyon is France's second city, but for many it is the culinary capital of France. Situated where the rivers Rhone and Saone meet, it also enjoys a lovely location and makes for a great centre for car hire. The Alps are just a couple of hours away to the East and to the West is the Ardeche and the Auvergne, undiscovered but spectacularly beautiful regions of France. So whether you arrive in Lyon by TGV (just two hours from Paris) or by air, hiring a car makes sense.

The city of Lyon is well worth spending a few days in. As well as the huge number of restaurants (many called "Bouchon" and serving all the local delicacies), the old part of Lyon, set between the two rivers, is a fascinating old area. Just across the river is a hill whereon is the Cathedral, and on a clear day the Alps are clearly visible. Lyon is also a great place for shopping, with everything from quaint antiquities to large modern shoppings malls.

The aiport is at Saint Expuréry about 25 km east of Lyon and several airlines fly there from the UK. It is directly connected to the A43, the Autoroute which connects to the Alpine ski resorts just a couple of hours away.  Visit our tourist information for France for more.
